Phrase National Tour

Artfully designed to jack up your adrenalin, Phrase’s third studio album Babylon hums with tremolo guitar, Farfisa and Hammond lines. The choruses (so epic they must be carved into the side of a mountain somewhere) feature gutsy vocals from an unlikely crew of special guests including Alex Burnett of Sparkadia, Davey Lane, Guineafowl, Jane Doe, and Jimmy Barnes. Accustomed to dropping his rhymes over loops and breaks, this time around Harley did away with all the samples and penned songs from scratch on guitar.

Babylon, his third album, throws down the gauntlet to any musician feeling hemmed in by a scene and longing to paint a bigger picture. The first single, Apart, sets the stage for Babylon, as a garage stomper with guitar twists and a chorus sung by You Am I’s Davey Lane — … Continue reading Phrase – Apart

Debuted on Triple J the other night, Apart features You Am I’s – Davey Lane on the hook as Phrase further explores his rock tendencies with a louder, more brash delivery of his rhymes. “To me, ‘Babylon’ means a place of beauty and getting to a better point in life.
